And I did manage not to embarrass myself too badly. Just general practice.
Big thing to note is the guy with the M&P I'd fired was there again, and he'd installed the Apex Duty/Carry kit.* I asked if it really made a difference and he handed me the pistol and a magazine.
Have you read any of the comments from, say, Tam or Robb about this? If you have, they're right. Man, what a difference! The trigger was lighter, and had a definite break-point instead of the 'somewhere around here' of the original parts. And, with the original I'd noticed(with some dry-firing) that the gun tended to torque to the right just as the trigger broke; that's gone, too.
Have to say, if I got one of these pistols I'd get the kit soon as could, it's worth it.
*The kit comes with a heavier trigger return spring; he'd left the original in to try it out first. According to what I'm reading the new spring would increase the trigger pull by about a pound; clean as it breaks now, I don't see that as being a problem.
